Subject:
Wooden chair question/ shape of back

Barry Irby
Been looking at a number of wooden chairs that have curved Back rests. The back is sort of a serpentine curve that looks like it would be comfortable and provide sumbar support. Maybe Maloof style, but maybe a little less "organic".

I'm thinking of setting up a form and laminating them but I want to get it right and not build a half a dozen different forms as an experiment. Any idea how to establish that curve?
